We are delighted to announce that VegWorld has a new owner. Amy Cowan switched over to the vegan lifestyle five years ago when her two young daughters successfully persuaded her and her husband to just give it a try. Like so many of us who quickly begin to feel better and connect with the profound message and implications of veganism, Amy soon discovered that her life and her family’s life completely changed for the better. Amy is grateful every day for the positive impact being vegan has made on her family and her community. Living this enlightened lifestyle has not only made her a happier, healthier person—but it has led her here to VegWorld where she hopes to continue to spread our important, passionate message to an even wider audience.
Welcome, Amy! We’re so pleased to have you at the helm of our ever-growing circle of friends and followers. We look forward to all that you will bring to the VegWorld family.
Veganism calls upon us to live the most compassionate lives we are capable of living. Veganism challenges us to look outside of ourselves and our immediate needs and to consider other, far broader and more pressing, needs. We are brought into a world of collective consciousness and invited to contemplate the sustainability of our actions, along with the health of our bodies and our environment. We begin thinking about where we belong in this delicate ecological balance of interwoven relationships called life.
In other words, we become mindful.
There is perhaps no better time of year for VegWorld to devote itself to a study of mindfulness. It is precisely during those times when holiday stresses bear down upon us and the world seems at its most harried and hectic, that the practice of mindfulness is so very urgently needed. In this issue, we are pleased to assist you with that task.
